More than 80 application case studies, selectable by industry and application, show how Cognex customers are benefiting from machine vision. Another new section of the site, called “Working with Cognex,” gives visitors options for learning more about vision technology through a wide range of seminars, training programs and tradeshows.
”We have an important responsibility to promote the benefits of applying vision to the manufacturing world and to provide world-class online support to our customers,” said Peter Neve, vice president of Global Marketing at Cognex. “The response to the new site has been overwhelmingly positive, especially to the increased use of video to explain our products and their applications.”
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
